Wednesday Question: Best Guitar Effect Pedals?
Our weekly polls celebrate the best in music - but there's one important category that often goes unnoticed. Over the decades, guitar effects pedals have been the unsung heroes of rock music, giving musicians the power to radically change their tone and style with the flick of a switch. They can provide subtle changes, prompt an intense quiet-to-loud dynamic shift, or enable wild chains of spaced-out effects with sounds from another dimension. This week's question is: What are the best guitar pedals in history? Read into that however you like. You might nominate pedals that you personally think sound best, or you might consider ones that helped define genres and had an important role in music history. Perhaps you want to celebrate the very best distortion, or the most popular delay unit. It would be great if niche pedal suppliers Nominate whatever you like, and if the crowd agrees with you, they'll vote for it. Hopefully the results will average out and we're left with a really killer top 10 of the greatest pedals of all time. Post one nomination per comment, and upvote any posts that you agree with. It will help a lot of you post YouTube demos of the pedals in action, and if you make your own, we might include it in the final roundup. We'll collect your answers and post the results on Friday.
